*MGySgt Couturier's Monthly Remarks:
-Already two weeks into October! Another busy month for us, ensure you look on the calendar for upcoming events! A few highlights:
A. CONGRATULATIONS to the cadets that made the Air Rifle Team! For those that didn't, keep your head up and carry on! I highly encourage you to participate in other activities such as S-Shops, Drill, and PFT teams! Don't get down on yourselves and continue improving!
1. SKYZONE Joliet money due by Wednesday otherwise will be cancelled. Complete the online waiver asap.
2. Final CFT test will most likely occur on 17 & 18 Oct. One week earlier due to the cold weather.
3. Major and I will determine when to go sleeves down and will make the announcement.
4. There must be a minimum of 5 cadets signed up for Haircuts by COB Monday otherwise haircuts will be cancelled for Tuesday.
5. After 8 weeks, still missing parent form & sports physical that should have been turned in by week two.
6. JROTC program participation acknowledge form should be turned into your cadet leadership asap.
7. We are one month away from the Cake Cutting Ceremony! Practices will be the entire week prior to 6 Nov.
AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES / CLUBS
Monday - Staff Mtg, S-Shops, Make Ups/Retakes & Individual drill practice / study time: If you are part of the Staff (Plt Sgt & above) you are expected to attend all Staff Meetings and participate in S-Shops. LE1s should participate in S-Shops to learn more about the inner-workings of the program. S-Shops (S1, S3, S4) play a critical role in your JROTC career progression, promotions, awards. Mondays are also a great time to ask for help in drill, study time, and taking care of any uniform issues. I would like to see more Squad or Platoon level time - great team building time.
Tuesday - Air Rifle Team #1
Wednesday - Drill Team. This encompasses the Color Guard. All cadets participating in this program have been issued Dress Blues and we will now start our Color Guard commitments and prepare for upcoming competitions and cake cutting ceremony. ALL Dress Blues will be kept at the school.
Thursday - Air Rifle Team #2
Friday - Physical Fitness Team. You don't have to be an athlete to participate. The focus is on improving and participation!
-Haircuts for $10.00 (cash only) are available by a professional military barber in Rm 902 every Tuesday after school unless otherwise scheduled. This not only provides a service for cadets but is also a fundraiser. If any of you know of siblings or friends interested in joining the program, they can get a haircut - let MGySgt C know first and sign them up!
-All cadets interested in participating in any after school JROTC clubs must have a CURRENT sports physical and the proper Parent Form (bring to MGySgt C) and pay their club fees to the school. Turn in asap! All sports physicals expire 13 months from date of examination.
-Daily homework: Study for Quizzes, Study Knowledge, Practice Drill, Conduct PT, Always have your uniform prepared for inspection
